Robot Chicken Strikes Back With More Star Wars
The Emperor, Darth Vader, Boba Fett, and the rest of everyone’s favorite Star Wars characters are back with more laughs and plenty of inside hardcore fan details in Robot Chicken: Star Wars Episode II. The special airs this Sunday, Nov. 16 on Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim at 11:30 PM. Starwars.com chats with Robot Chicken creators Seth Green and Matthew Senreich about what fans can expect from the new episode as well as special guest star appearances. Seth also talks about his upcoming directorial debut for his comic book The Freshman.
Any notable guest star voices you’d like to mention?
Seth: Carrie Fisher is in the show, which is awesome.
Matt: Billy Dee Williams came in and knocked it out of the park for us.
Seth: We got to record Billy Dee before, so we had kind of a rapport with him. And this was just… I can’t tell you how much I love Billy Dee Williams. He is so awesome. The tracks he gave us are outrageous. We even wrote a whole sketch for the proper season where Billy Dee himself encounters a fan at the supermarket, we loved him so much.
Ahmed Best came in to do Jar Jar. I can’t even express how talented that kid is. Abe Benrubi came back to do our Darth Vader.
Matt: Seth MacFarlane is in it again as the Emperor. Breckin Meyer is Boba Fett again. Seth: Donald Faison makes a great appearance as Gary the Stormtrooper.
Is this the first time you all have worked with Carrie Fisher for Robot Chicken?
Seth: This is the first time she’s done Robot Chicken, but I’ve worked with her before on Austin Powers and we’ve met a bunch over the years. She was great! She was really game and very fun, and totally engaged in the material.
Matt: She said if George Lucas could do it, she could do it.
